Continuity mistake: When Sheriff Bart and The Waco Kid are sitting in the sheriff's office, the Waco Kid is shaving. He has shaving cream on his face, he wipes some if it off, leaving some on. Bart kicks a chair and the Waco Kid jumps up and the shaving cream is gone.

Suggested correction: If you re-watch the scene, yes the Waco Kid shaves and wipes his face. However, when Bart kicks his chair, and both jump up, you see a spot of shaving cream on Jim's face about mid-cheek, and a spot just under his side-burn.

Continuity mistake: When Waco Kid is lying down on hay bales at the end of the film, there is no horse. All of a sudden when he's invited somewhere by Sheriff Bart, a horse appears. (01:33:50)

Suggested correction: It is true that the horse suddenly appears, but Jim is reclined on hay bales, not boxes.

For future reference, this is what the "change the entry's wording" option is for.

This entry is about the sudden appearance of a horse. It has nothing to do with The Waco Kid reclining on boxes nor does the entry say he was reclining on boxes. It says that he's reclining on bales of hay.

It did say bales of hay - I've left the correction and "change wording" comment online for a bit for informational purposes.

Other mistake: When the Western fight breaks into the dance movie set, the background of the Western movie is seen, even though it was all several hundred feet away, on an outdoor set.

Suggested correction: This is entirely in keeping with the "reveal of the movie within a movie.

Jason Hoffman

Of that, there's no question. I was pointing out that the sets for both movies were a distance apart...the Western backdrop should not have been seen.

Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning when the two black workers are using the handcart to look for quicksand, you can see the cable pulling them in one quick shot.
